‘Politically the weimar republic was fragile’. explain the statement

Q- “Politically the Weimar Republic was fragile.” Explain the statement.

Answer- The Weimar Constitution had some inherent defects which made it unstable. Due to proportional representation, one single party could not come to power; rather a coalition government was formed. 

Another defect was the Article 48, which gave the President the powers to impose emergency, suspend civil right and rule with decree. Within a short period of time, many governments changed and his people lose confidence in the democratic parliamentary system which seemed to offer no solutions.
